In 1999, the 1100th anniversary of the death of Alfred the Great, two international conferences were held to re-evaluate and contextualise Alfred's achievements and the developments of his reign. This volume includes papers given at both events and provides substantial assessments, by leading scholars, of issues of source-criticism, of the large corpus of Old English literature associated with Alfred and of developments in government and society in late 9th century England. It also explores how Alfred and his kingdom related to the wider geo-political and cultural situation in the British Isles and continental Europe, and closes with a substantial survey of the uses and shifts in Alfred's reputation in the centuries following his death.
